Mexico upsets Germany as top teams have trouble winning at World Cup

"With all respect, I think in the first half of the match that we were the superior team".

Germany defeated Mexico 4-1 on the way to hoisting the Confederations Cup trophy in Russian Federation a year ago, but Osorio said he will not alter his side's approach for the Group F showdown.

If Germany finish as group runners-up, they could face Brazil in a clash of World Cup titans in the next round - a ideal chance for the Brazilians to avenge the humiliating 7-1 defeat to the Germans on home soil in 2014. "We could have scored much earlier", Osorio said.

Osorio became more cautious, taking off Vela and Lozano for Raul Jimenez and Edson Alvarez, before introducing Mexico legend Rafa Marquez, who became only the third player to play at five World Cups and the first in history to captain a country in five.

"I tried to make sure that the pressure is all on me, so that all they have to do is go out and do what they did today", he said.

In September 2010, Mexico players partied with women after a game in Monterrey.

One area where Mexico needs to improve is scoring goals after netting just once in its last four friendlies - and that was against Scotland, which hasn't qualified for the World Cup in the last 20 years.

"I am very satisfied, this is very important for the future of Mexican football.we will celebrate responsibly, recover well and plan for the next match". The U.S. failed to qualify for another World Cup until 1990 in Italy. "At least two sensors inside the city detected it at 11:32".

We may have just witnessed a case of a citizen cutting off a potential mass shooting before the police had time to arrive. At that point, she said, two armed civilians in the parking lot confronted the suspect, one of whom shot the man dead.

Mexican fans were so excited that they even created an quake of their own with their celebration of the goal.

The first half proved decisive.

"They've always done things like that", 53-year-old fan Magdalena Martinez said Sunday of the partying Mexican players. In the second half they tried to attack more.

His calming influence was crucial, marshaling the space in front of Mexico's back four as wave after wave of German attacks descended on the area. "We have to show what we can do in the next games", he added.

Germany had won every one of their previous tournament openers at European Championships and World Cups since Joachim Low took over as coach in 2006. "We played with bravery when it was needed and also defended with all of our hearts".

Neuer, who started his first competitive game since September, said Germany is aware that another loss would end its World Cup run.

Defending World Cup champions have been finding it hard to get out of the group stage lately, and Germany is proving no exception.
